Throwback to ’70s Fashion Like Anne Curtis and Aimee Song With Bell Sleeves


If a trend survives the test of time, it can eventually become a classic instead of something that just pops up on our radar and then disappears. We’ve seen this with the comeback of ’90s trends like tinted sunglasses. However, a clothing style from the ’70s is starting to pop up again. Whether you’re scrolling through Instagram or window-shopping, you’ve probably seen bell sleeves on tops and dresses. This detail can be as minimal or exaggerated as you want depending on your personal style. You can also take inspiration from these celebrities who are getting into the trend as well.
